Chilean studio ERRE Arquitectos has constructed Casa Ferran, a low-profile vacation home in Matanzas on the coast of Chile.
Raimundo Gutiérrez of ERRE Arquitectos designed the 240-square-metre (2,580-square-foot) residence as a U-shape on the sting of a cliff that limits the buildable space of the two,200-square-metre web site, because it drops steeply right down to the Pacific Ocean.
Gutiérrez thought of three major components when laying out the plan: creating an exterior zone that is protected against the prevailing southwestern wind, sustaining privateness on the north and south sides, and taking full benefit of the ocean views.
To perform this, the U-shaped plan factors away from the ocean with a protected central courtyard on the excessive aspect of the slope, which connects to the ocean via the totally glazed frequent space.
“What the undertaking seeks is to generate a transversal and permeable axis within the east-west path, which connects two exterior areas with dissimilar traits via the inside frequent space,” the studio instructed Dezeen.
“The remainder of this system is organized to comprise and provides form to this axis.”
Two wings are positioned on both aspect of the central quantity – one containing three bedrooms and two planted atriums, the opposite angled outwards to catch the coated parking space that feeds into the service zones and visitor bed room.
The central quantity containing the kitchen, eating, and dwelling areas is see-through and light-filled, with floor-to-ceiling home windows on either side and sliding glass doorways that stretch the area onto a coated patio that runs parallel to the ocean.
Set on a board-formed concrete basis, the home is primarily constructed out of black-coloured metal, creating robust framing traces alongside the shape and across the expansive glazing.
The outside cladding is vertical one-inch by two-inch pine boards that present a tonal variation alongside the north and south facades – that are a cut-off diamond form as the home accommodates the sloped web site – and transitions right into a lattice for the parking space.
On the inside, a comfortable white palette and heat wooden flooring amplify the size of the rooms and permit the encircling sea view to be the focus of every area.
The house’s association brings daylight into every room, maximizing passive heating from the coastal local weather in each the summer season and winter.
“To enhance and obtain greater temperatures through the coldest days, there’s a wood-burning fire within the frequent area and central heating radiators all through the home,” the studio mentioned.
The tip of every wing has a planted inexperienced roof.
“The design responds to parts of natural structure,” the studio mentioned. “Nonetheless, formally inflexible options seem, that are the results of a number of variables, situations and calls for that had been offered.”
Much like Casa Ferran, Chilean architect Juan Pablo Ureta designed a seaside home on Chile’s northern coast that’s oriented round a central courtyard, nonetheless, this one opens towards the ocean.
In El Pangue, structure studios Combeau Arquitectura and Andrea Murtagh designed an ocean getaway with clustered gabled varieties.
